Distance, the awesome racing platformer has a new mini-campaign out

Posted by , | Views: 3,787

For those who've completed the main content of Distance you might want to grab your keys as it has a new mini-campaign out.

In the last few days, it has been updated with a new mini-camaign named Nexus which includes five new tracks. To access it, you need to have finished the Lost to Echoes adventure.

There's also six new levels to sprint through as fast as you can in the arcade mode and a new challenge level named Variant Blue. The Variant Blue level is incredibly odd, as it's a top-down birds-eye view instead of being from behind the car:

I'm not a big fan of it though, as the camera movement is incredibly slow for such a fast-paced game it doesn't feel right. The camera doesn't follow your car, so you're having to make sure you stay on the screen. Challenging, sure, but just doesn't feel like a fit being able to go too fast for the camera.

I have to say, I'm so incredibly impressed with Distance. It's such a unique experience to have such an adventure, inside what's essentially a racing game with a bunch of platformer elements. Refract did such an amazing job on the atmosphere, the main adventure mode sent chills down my spine on some tracks. The thumping music, the fantastic style to it and the decent challenge too all make it a rather rewarding experience.

Lasers will cut your car to bits, platforms will come crashing down, you fly off the track and deploy your wings to reach other parts of a level and all while you're trying not to overheat and blow up. Some parts really are incredibly tricky, requiring your full attention as you quickly jump, power your boosters to force your car quickly back down onto the track to avoid overhead obstacles followed by a jump from one track to another that's on its side. Some of it is absolute madness and it's a good bit of fun.

Refract are doing a fantastic job with extra free content like the new mini-campaign and I highly recommend Distance. Find Distance on Humble Store and Steam.

I don't see any update for it in the Humble account.
